Jack Ryan Film Moving Forward with New Screenwriter

Jack Ryan DVD Collection
More information about the DVD

The Hollywood Reporter's Heat Vision blog is reporting that the Jack Ryan action thriller currently in development is getting a new screenwriter: Anthony Peckham, who wrote last year's Sherlock Holmes.

Late last year we reported that Chris Pine had been confirmed as the next Jack Ryan in an original screenplay, not based on any existing Tom Clancy novel. More details on the script emerged earlier this year, with the film tentatively titled Moscow and set during the period in which Ryan is a financial analyst (post-Marines, pre-CIA).

Paramount is hoping to reboot the franchise with this new film. Four previous Jack Ryan films have been made: Alec Baldwin played the character in The Hunt for Red October (1990), Harrison Ford in Patriot Games (1992) and Clear and Present Danger (1994), and most recently Ben Affleck in The Sum of All Fears (2002).
